The sabbatical is not vacation. The pastoral sabbatical is intended to provide pastoral staff who have served for an extended period at our church with a gift of time away from normal responsibilities and locations to pursue a plan of personal evaluation, refreshment, replenishment, and enhancement. The sabbatical is not just a reward for longevity of service and commitment. More importantly, it is an opportunity for those who have given consistently of their teaching and life to refill their own hearts and resources in order than they might continue in effective service to the Lord in this congregation.
